Have you tried Stencil – you can access images and edit them within the app

The article mentions the Creative Commons site but doesn’t include the search function, which I use heavily for images to use online. go to https://search.creativecommons.org and check both boxes (which limits the search to images you can use for commercial purposes as well as those you can modify or adapt). Then pick your resource. I find a lot of great stuff on Flickr, but this also gives you access to Google Images, Wikimedia Commons, and others.
